Cloudy golden color. Big piny vegetal hop aroma. A little malt in the flavor but the hops are big and bitter. Nice beer but a little on the bitter piny side for me.

A lighter colored IPA, this has some vice hops but also a weird malty flavor and a fairly dry finish. Decent

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Good size head with the first pour that fades to a ring with good lacing. Aromas start with a grassy pine nose that weaken too soon. Flavors start with malty pine that gives way to the bitterness. Strong bitterness with a very dry finish. Refreshing on a hot day. I like the flavors to be more balanced instead of hop bitter domination. Good beer, but won’t get more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark gold to orange pour with a two finger, creamy off white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is full of pine, some spicy hops, citrus, light dank hops, some cereal, toasty grain oil, and a little biscuit. Flavor is pine resin and spruce tips, sweet cereal malt, a little toast, Amarillo-like spicy citrus, some dankness, a little mango and guava. Medium body, creamy to juicy entry, slightly more syrupy middle, medium carbonation and dry finish with a pretty good hop acid bite. Really good stuff, I actually enjoyed letting this warm up a bit as the hop notes evolved nicely.
